Dublin’s promises and exciting Chinese New Year festival for 2018

This years Dublin Chinese New Year Festival will take place from the 16th February to the 4th March 2018.

DCNYF is a programme of the City Arts Office, part of the Culture, Community & Recreation Department of Dublin City Council. The work of the Arts Office is made possible by the support of the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Mícheál MacDonncha, and the members of Dublin City Council.

Established in 2008, the Dublin Chinese New Year Festival (DCNYF) year-on-year celebrates, promotes and deepens the understanding of the Sino/Irish relationship.  The 2018 programme celebrates The Year of the Dog and marks the 10th year of this internationally recognised festival. With Chinese New Year’s Day falling on Friday 16th of February 2018, the festival plans to deliver a high profile cultural and celebratory programme to mark this significant date in the Chinese Calendar. Dublin will also continue to build on its twinning agreement with Beijing signed in 2011 and Dublin Airport Authority twinning with Beijing Airport established in 2013.
